Amboyna Scales.....Again

Here is the latest set of Amboyna scales during their final wedge gluing. This is another big chopper. The scales are lined this time with white vinyl spacing material. The final pinning and polishing will probably be tomorrow, but I thought you might want to see what it looks like before that.

Thanks Ralfy,

That wood is from South America. The blades are not mine. I made these for someone else. I also made a great set of G-10 scales this week for a Wapi. I wish I could have kept that one for myself. It turned out really nice.

I see you shaved with your razor. If I have more than 1 day's growth, it usually takes 4 passes to get a complete shave. Don't expect the razor, no matter how sharp it is, to remove a heavy growth in the first pass. In fact, you might want to make that first one lighter than normal.

Thanks Ray, yeah I do 4 passes, and today I only had 1 days growth, tbh I get a better shave after 2 days growth, I think its a skin thing?
Great work again Ray

It's kinda late, I realize, but do you happen to have some shot of this thing? I'd love to have a glimpse.

kind regards,

Matt,
I do not have a photo of the G-10. They are made from fiberglass and have a similar look to micarta. Both have the layering effect going on, so you will have lines running around the edges. Very work intensive and dirty.
